Come along to meet your neighbours, find out about fun activities coming up, make suggestions for events you would like to see on Kings Crescent, get involved etc.
There will also be a Hackney representative attending the meeting so you can discuss any issues you might be experiencing on the estate
We will be deciding at this meeting if we are wanting to transition into a ‘Tenants & Residents Association’ rather than the ‘supported residents group’ that we currently are meaning we are supported by Hackney’s resident participation team. Being a TRA will allow us a bit more independence and to have our own bank account and therefore apply for external funding, grants etc for any projects we want to do. We will also be receiving an income from the film crews using the hoarded area so we need a bank account for that!
We require a minimum of 15 residents to vote for us to become a TRA so please come along if you can to support the residents group and have a say in what happens on Kings Crescent.
If you would like to be involved or join the committee please email us to let us know what position you would like or to discuss what options are available: firstname.lastname@example.org
See full agenda below and minutes of the meeting will be posted here within a week of the meeting so you can always catch up with what happened if you can’t make it on the day.
